Go to:

In the late renaissance (c. 1580-1600) and in the baroque (c. 1600-17??) periods many different types of extended lutes were popular. One group of these was called by names archlute, arciliuto, liuto attiorbato, .... Common to this group was that the courses on fingerboard were tuned in the old "renaissance way". Robert Spencer's article Chitarrone, Theorbo and Archlute is a well written introduction to these extended lutes.
